AbstractWe use DTI to detect and quantify Wallerian degeneration (WD) in pediatric MCA strokes. Fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD)of the infarction, ipsilateral internal capsule (PLIC) and cerebral peduncle (CP) were measured in nine children and compared to the matched contralateral side. WD was characterized by statistically significant differences in FA, but not MD, of the ipsilateral PLIC and CP compared to normal side. FA was reduced in all children, whilst corresponding hyperintense signals on T2W were seen in five children. DTI is more sensitive than conventional MRI and can be used to detect and quantify WD.
